Communications Utility Network Foundation

Communications Utility Network Foundation

A communications utility network foundation (CUNF) can be used to model the behavior of communication networks. It enables users to model network behavior in a more accurate way and perform more powerful network analysis. It uses a user- defined network rule base to specify the types of features that can be connected and associated. This rule base is referenced during editing operations. If existing features do not conform to these rules, they are flagged for correction or are represented as error features. It can also be used to model the flow of resources in a network.

Electric utility network foundation

The Electric Utility Network Foundation (EUNF) is a template for configuring and modeling the electric utility network. This template includes an information model for the most common types of electric equipment and cables. However, this does not include every possible variation, as it is meant to be a general representation of electric systems. It also integrates with other information systems to simplify the creation of new utility networks.

UNFs also enable the modeling of assets, which are typically hidden from the view of a map. For example, if a water main breaks, it can be used to identify the shutoff valves that should be closed. Additionally, the utility network has a tracing framework that enables detailed tracing analysis.

The Utility Network delivers advanced asset modeling and modern web GIS architecture, as well as analysis tools. With this data, utilities can improve efficiency by analyzing and presenting data to make better …
